The Eternal and Reborn Empire of Southern Cross is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kronprinz Mara Rumata with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.116 billion Cross are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
